A 21-year-old woman from Miami claims Spirit Airlines wouldn’t let her bring her emotional support hamster on a plane back in November . . . and told her to flush it down the TOILET.  So she did.


Bad info from Spirit Air led me to flush pet hamster down airport toilet, student says

A Miami Beach student says Spirit Airlines twice told her she could fly with her hamster, a certified emotional-support animal, but refused to allow the tiny pet on the plane at the airport - even in the cargo hold. An airline spokesman admits she was initially told the hamster could fly but denies suggesting she dispose of it at the airport.
